My blog is Papertree - papertree.blogspot.com, and I blog about my family, my cat, me, my friends and any creation that I come up with - I'm a scrapbooker, alterer, designer and paper crafter. I primarily set up my blog so my extended family could keep in touch with us - it's grown over the past couple of years and now I blog every day. I love finding and meeting new bloggers!

I started blogging about 2 weight loss challenges I'd joined and then the rest of my life kinda crept in.
I write 5-7 posts a week. I try to write one every day but sometimes life gets in the way!!
Yes, I do get visitors other than friends and family. I recently joined a site for bloggers in my city and have picked up some followers from there. Others have happened onto my blog after Googling adoption and Trisomy 18.
It's an outlet for me, a way to get what's locked up inside of me out. Whatever is going on in my life at the time is usually what winds up in my blog for the day. Some posts are informative, some are funny, and some require a box of tissues. It's much cheaper than therapy!!
my blog is www.newyorkcitysinglemom.com
My blog is combination of posts about raising my 6 year old adopted daughter in NYC and interesting pop cultural/business stories that interest me and hopefully my readers. I started the blog after I was laid from Citigroup, yes that Citigroup. I miss the paycheck but not the company.

I write 1-3 posts a day with no set schedule. (I need one) and get about 60-100 visitors/day. My family and friends for the most part do NOT visit my blog.

Look forward to going through this forum discussion. Its good way to learn about other peoples blogs.
Hello everyone!! I am trying to get the feel of this site and this is officially my first post! yay! ;)

My name is Leila aka Miss LaLa (because almost all kids end up calling me that!) and I am a novice blogger. I've been managing online forums and writing for years so you would think blogging is a natural progression, however, I just never made time for it! After many many many friends and family have encouraged (harassed) me to apply my ambition towards blogging I finally gave in. I'm still trying to figure it all out.

My first projects have to do with my businesses. This is the one I am primarily focusing on:

http://littlepeachlings.wordpress.com/

I'm a single Mom and my two amazing children are my world, I am in the process of launching my home child care again after taking a few years off. Both of my kids have severe food allergies and our lives are by far the quintessential definition of family... but we are definitely a happy one! I will be writing about our life, craft ideas, recipes, activities with kids, my program. My goal is to provide a positive perspective on child care providers, while helping other providers with resources and ideas as well as give families inspiration! I plan on writing at a minimum of twice per week.

Right now I only have friends and family visiting my site because it is so new.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and browsing your blogs! Thanks!
My blog is www.purenaturaldiva.com

I blog about whole living with style and my experiences in changing to more natural lifestyle without giving up syle.
I'm very concerned about the overall amount of toxins and chemicals that our bodies are exposed to in our daily lives that we don't really know anything about - and ways to minimize that exposure - without giving up my lipstick!

I expect to post daily, but at the moment I'm posting 2-3 times a day... I have a lot of posts to get off my brain.
About 60-70% of my visitors are from searches.
I just started blogging last month for the very first time. I blog life , the pursuit of happiness, the journey of a SAHM and other random thoughts that swirl in my head. here is my link...
http://flowercarlady.blogspot.com/

I blog about once a day and I have not sent out a link to friends and family so the little traffic I have is other bloggers or curious humans on the net.
I love reading blogs and I hope to accumulate a collection of blogs that I enjoy reading and hope that people who like my blog choose to read what I write.
Ok now I am off to check all the neat sounding blogs on this thread.
glad to meet ya' and here i am...

- why i chose that topic to blog about: maintenance of sanity
- how many posts per week: varies depending on the voices in my head...2-4
- other visitors? yes. been recognized by blogher (carry their ads too) and mom logic.
- i started blogging about a year ago so i'm a newbie. i left writing five years ago and wanted to fine-tune my craft after letting it sit dormant for so long. with two children under five, motherhood is the all-encompassing, dominant force in my life these days. so, i started the blog about what I (don't) know best. i soon discovered the amazing power of being able to put my feelings, frustrations, daily trials, etc on paper. Pretty soon people I didn't know (but do now) started reading. I love my little blog family now and it's something I look forward to doing each week. Sometimes I wonder if I'm sharing too much, but then I get a comment from the dark depths of cyberpspace that says, "Thank you. I was feeling the same thing." I smile. Every single time.

Visit me anytime and feel free to follow, sign up for e-mail, etc. if you like what you read.
My blog is Real Mommy Blog

I started this blog just to write about some of the silly things my kids do, and the occasion rant about the perfect moms! It really depends on how busy I am that week how many posts I write, but this week I have done several. I just started it so I don't really get any visitors yet. I have a few coming over from my digi scrap freebie blog but that's it so far.

and i have no idea why it posted twice! sorry!
Hi,

I'm new the the blog world. As if having two kids wasn't enough work I now got hooked on blogging and have no idea what I'm doing.

Write what you know. Right now I'm a mom on maternity leave and that's what I can say I know about right now.
I post daily. Once the kids are in bed I hop on the computer and post/vent/rant online.
I get visitors. I joined The Secret is in the Sauce and so far I've had lots of visitors welcoming me to the blog world.

Check me out: http://bumbumpatch.blogspot.com/

Here's the bio:
Angeline Mair is on maternity leave from life in the editorial department at a community newspaper. I'm a self proclaimed supermom and even then being home with an infant and preschooler is proving much more challenging then ever expected. I want to share the ups and downs of parenting with others so I can find comfort that I'm not the only one making a mess of this important part of life.
Hi, I'm Erin! My main blog is Players to be Named Later. It was started by my husband and I to document our life when we first decided to start our family. Now it's about day to day life with our twins. Some weeks have more posts than others, I would say between 2 and 10 posts a week. Some posts are heavy on the pictures and more geared towards keeping family up to date, some are just about the day to day of learning how to cope as a working mom with twins. Lately some women I met on my expecting club board have started doing some vlogging as well. My husband jumps in every now and then but I'd say it's 99% me at this point. I would say most of my visitors are family and friends plus the women from iVillage and I got lots of clicks over from comments I leave on other blogs as well.

Sometimes it can border on TMI at my blog- I let it all hang out...unless I think it will offend my MIL, then I keep my mouth shut.
A good friend and I entered the blogging world at the end of January, 2009, after threatening to do it for a year. Cindy/'Ethel' and I met in 1997, thanks to spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), an insidious disease affecting the motor neurons responsible for movement, swallowing, and breathing. Our baby, Jeffrey, had a severe case of the deadliest form and earned his official wings at 5-1/2 months. Cindy's son, Kevin, is a teen with a milder form and holding his own despite increased weakness.

We both live in NC: my family in the mountains, hers in a small town. Our instant bond quickly transcended the devastation of SMA, and we have been fast, if not sane, friends ever since. In 2001, I wrote a book about our brief time with Jeffrey; Cindy wrote the foreword. Over the years, we spoke often of meeting in the Suite, a happy place with no responsibilities, scales, or bills... but lots of M&Ms. Somewhere along the line, we dubbed ourselves Lucy and Ethel, and The Suite Life of Lucy and Ethel was born :)

While the original intent of our blog was to focus on life - and death - with SMA (along with spreading the word about this leading genetic killer of children under 2), it has become an eclectic blog because we apparently have more ADD than we thought. We have met some terrific fellow blogger moms of special needs children as well as moms who have lost children from other causes; we're glad to be branching out beyond SMA, although that will always remain our 'baby.'

On occasion, we spotlight those in the SMA family, as it’s an incredible group. In addition, we have spotlighted other special circumstances and love finding such blogs for our 'Special Assignments' blogroll. We also have blogs listed that we just enjoy.

We post at least once daily, if not twice, so on a weekly basis, there are 8-14 posts. We do have some followers (we'd love more!), but it looks like we have quite a few subscribers and/or visitors, based on the counter. We have recently joined Twittermania in a quest to draw more attention to the blog in some way, but it's hard to keep up with just a few other things spinning madly on our respective gerbil wheels....

We have found many excellent blogs already! In trying to keep some semblance of focus, we very recently branched out into another blog to cover our quest for losing weight and living frugally, and I just started a blog for our cabin's newsletter because of technical difficulties with the web site program; however, that blog enables me to share the 'rural living' blogs that didn't quite fit anywhere in The Suite Life, which is good :)

Whoa, this is way more info than requested - sorry!

We'll be eagerly checking some of your blogs as we can!

Helen/'Lucy'
